Summary: A Christian must start his journey with Christ by sitting--resting alongside the Savior who has done all the work.

  Study Tools

I don’t know if you are familiar with watchman nee’s book, “Sit,walk,and stand.”

In this book, he notes how a Christian must start his journey with Christ by sitting--resting alongside the Savior who has done all the work. And because Christ has done all the work, the Christian is given the peace of knowing there is nothing he or she can add.

The book of Ephesians challenges everything that holds us back. This book enlarges our goals, expands our visions, and gets us moving.

The author wants the Ephesians to reach for the highest stars. The book of Ephesian is written to show how big our God really is.

Eph 2:6; For he raised us from the dead along with Christ, and we are seated with him in the heavenly realms—all because we are one with Christ Jesus.

We are the carriers of His glory because of the presence of God in our lives. His life was laid down that we might gain access to the very portals of heaven, that glory might reign again in the very creation of God.

Many Christians today are not reigning in life. They have no idea that Christ redeemed us so that we can reign with Him. We are called to live in another realm, the realm of glory, so we have to learn to operate from where we come from. We are Eagles not turkeys!

Let us look at these principles that we see in the book of Ephesians.

I. Sit.

Sit means rest. As I have mentioned earlier a Christian must start his journey with Christ by sitting. Knowing that everything was done for us by the Savior. Know your place in Christ!

Christ is seated in heaven at the Father’s right hand, resting while God enforces the victory that His Son achieved at the cross. The bible says, we are seated with him in the heavenly realms. Christian should see things in Christ perspective.

When we see things from heavenly places, time is irrelevant because we are seeing from the eternal realm. You have the ability to see things as they are called to be in the eternal, to see as God sees! And the miracle is just a release of heavens glory into this earthly realm. We should see things here on earth as if we are from heaven.

As a child of God, you are to trust in your heavenly Father and adopt the same attitude of rest. God wants you to have a throne mentality, a winning attitude.

Christ has done and provided everything — healing, provisions, breakthroughs that we need.

We are called to enter into the realm of the Spirit and to see from a heavenly perspective

So cease struggling, sit still and watch as God’s mighty hand moves in your behalf.

II. Walk.

Ephesians 2:10

For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Walking comes from being seated as the Christian merely lives out the Christian life by claiming his place seated alongside Christ. As people sitting with Christ in the heavenly realms we should have His perspective. You cannot walk the Christian way if you are not seated with Christ.

Walking is posture. It’s easy to spot people with breeding.I don’t know if it’s easy to spot Christians who knos their position in Christ. Christians who walk with their heads held up high are those that know they are sons and daughters of the King.
